Brooklyn, NY - A one-time Brooklyn lawyer who happens to be an Orthodox Jew has discovered a new publishing niche: creating religious-themed children’s books and bible trading cards—which sell like hotcakes in Christian bookstores.

“There was nothing out there that I wanted my daughters to see,” said Steven Kaye, explaining why he founded Creation by Design two years ago to bring out Biblical “edu-tainment” for kids aged 6 to 13. So far, his product line includes trading cards with 3-D graphics and a book series about a 9-year-old explorer who has Biblical adventures.

Launched in December, the Xander Nash series is now sold in more than 700 Christian bookstores, Mr. Kaye said. “When I explain [to the booksellers] that my kids need the same values taught to them as theirs do,” Mr. Kaye said, “they understand it very quickly.”

Mamlechet Cohanim.

Cohain comes from Co (chaf) which means "like"
Hain (heh nun) means "this"
Cohain mean "(be) like this" - setting the example for others.
